Lola brings back a plate of food untouched. After the staff find out there's nothing wrong with it, a black man suddenly barges into the kitchen. He refuses to pay anything. He thinks the food is arty-crafty, too expensive, that the portions are too small and he dislikes the French names on the menu. It's Justin Blackstock, Gareth's estranged father. After a diner at home, he claims Gareth is unable to cook Jamaican food. Although he knows nothing about it, Gareth decides to serve only Caribbean food at Le Chateau next Friday. Everton, an expert in this type of cuisine, thinks this will be his chance to prove himself. Lucinda, Piers and Otto make fun of him. Written by Arnoud Tiele (
